there. but first our top story live here at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock in new york city. and we begin with the latest on the rapidly approaching fiscal cliff deadline of automatic tax hikes on everybody and what appears to be a stalemate in the negotiations. in his first interview since the election, president obama reiterated his demand that any deal must raise taxes on the highest earner. yesterday obama also appeared to showroom for flexibility on actually relowering those tax rates in the future. >> i don't think that the issue right now has to do with sitting in a room. the issue right now that's relevant is the acknowledgement that if we're going to raise revenues that are sufficient to balance with the very tough cuts that we've already made and the further reforms and entitlements that i'm prepared to make, that we're going to have to see the rates on the top 2% go up. and we're not going to be able to get a deal without it. p what i've suggested is let's essentially put a down payment on taxes. let's let tax rates on the upper income folks go up. and then let's set up a proce

. >>> details surrounding the tragic death of the kansas city chiefs' linebacker and his girlfriend as the chiefs play an emotional game yesterday at arrowhead stadium. >>> first let's get to our top story at 5:30 a.m. on the east coast at 30 rock in new york city. lawmakers now have less than a month to compromise and avoid a year-end deadline that would trigger massive spending cuts and tax hikes at the same time for everybody. behind the scenes negotiations, absolutely at a stalemate. so both sides, what do they do? they go public on the sunday morning talk shows to state their cases. treasury secretary tim geithner on your left predicting republicans would eventually come around to accept a tax increase on the highest earners. >> you think we'll get a deal by the end of the year? >> i do. i do. the only thing standing in the way of that would be a refusal by republicans to accept that rates are going to have to go up on the wealthiest americans. and i don't really see them doing that. >> if the republicans say sorry, no way, are we going to raise rates on the wealthy, you guys a
rock in new york city. >>> the effort to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff is now a two-man operation. president obama and speaker boehner. thank you. nobody else will be in the room. with 24 days before a year-end deadline, "the new york times" says boehner made the request to clear the negotiation room going forward, leaving it up to himself and the president to reach a deal to avoid automatic tax hikes and deep spending cuts. and while the two men may be negotiating privately, yesterday the president took his mess dwrooj the public, visiting a local virginia family as a part of his social media campaign. while sitting around the kitchen table, he told the family he felt optimistic. >> the message that i think we all want to send to members of congress is this is a solvable problem. the senate has already passed a bill that would make sure the middle class taxes do not go up next year by a single dime. just to be clear, i'm not going to sign any package that somehow prevents the top rate from going up for folks at the top 2%, but i do remain optimistic that we can get something done

.m. here at 30 rock in new york city. >>> with 11 days until the fiscal cliff deadline, the house of representatives has gone home for christmas. and negotiations are in absolute limbo right now. in a pretty embarrassing setback last night, house speaker john boehner pulled the plug on his so-called plan b proposal that would have raised taxes on those making over $1 million. the republican-led house abruptly went on recess after boehner realized he just didn't have enough votes for the measure to pass. house majority leader eric cantor who assured earlier in the day that plan b would pass didn't have a whole thrott say last night. >> no vote tonight? >> no. >> will there be a vote tomorrow? >> nope. >> are you ditching plan b? will there be a vote today? >> no. >> a lot of nopes and then no answer when they asked if he was ditching plan b. republican congressman steve latourette was in the room when they called off the vote. >> led us in both the pledge and the prayer. he gave the serenity prayer. and then went to the microphone and said there's going to be a short conference. we
